Konica Minolta Combines CR, DR for Improved Imaging

Konica Minolta introduced a new digital radiography (DR) room solution, the REGIUS Digital Imaging Suite consisting of a float-top table, the Nano CR system and a control station that controls both REGIUS 370 and the Nano CR.

The system, commercially available in January 2008, features an advanced phosphor detector Cesium Bromide (CsBR) to produce a high level of detective quantum efficiency (DQE). The Nano CR is a compact, single bay CR reader with an image preview time of 13 seconds. The control station provides a unified imaging platform that includes Konica Minolta’s patented Hybrid image processing algorithms, which reportedly provides superior image quality for even the most discerning radiologists.
